    Get her one of the free texting apps that gives her a phone number. She can text from that as much as she wants, and if someone tries to call her, she will get a notification.

    I actually use my touch as a phone (because TextFreeUnlimited allows me to make calls) and it's totally free :)

    Wow, can the iPod Touch be used as a cellphone? I thought it couldn't connect to cellphone networks, only Wifi.

    If you have wifi near you all the time, then you can use one of the many available voip apps to call people and even receive calls

    OP, your wife can use the textplus 4 (free app) to send and receive messages. I use it and its awesome. You even get a phone number so other people can text you any time (if you have wifi around you).
